Dermal Enhancement

Our skin always benefits from a bit of freshening up. The skin is exposed to outside influences each and every day. As we age, the quality of our skin diminishes as well, becoming drier and rougher in texture, for example. This is due to decreasing levels of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. To repair the skin, we employ a range of dermal enhancement techniques. The aim of these treatments is to hydrate your skin from the inside out and let it glow again.

Consult a Medical Specialist

We always schedule a consultation prior to any treatment. During this meeting, the practitioner will listen to your wishes and explore ways to achieve your goal. The practitioner will provide you with extensive information on preparation and follow-up, what results to expect, possible risks and the recovery process for your chosen procedure.

The Procedure

Once you decide to have us perform a specific procedure, we will ask you to complete a medical questionnaire and sign a treatment contract before commencing the procedure. Do you take multiple medications? Please bring a list of your current medicines to your appointment.

We will take photographs for your medical records both before and after your treatment. In certain cases, we will apply local anesthesia to numb your skin prior to treatment, using either a numbing cream or a liquid anesthetic.

Follow-Up

We will email you a follow-up form after the treatment. You can go straight home; there’s no need for you to stay at the clinic. The skin can often appear red and swollen after a treatment and some people may experience bruising. These side effects will go away on their own. If you were told to cool the treated area with the coolpack provided, it is important to follow this advice carefully. In case of bad bruises, we recommend applying Arnica ointment to the affected area.

The application of makeup to treated areas is not recommended for the first four hours after the procedure. Additionally, we advise against exposing these areas to intense heat (sun, sauna or tanning bed) for at least a week after treatment. Nor is it advisable to have any facials within two weeks of your procedure. After two weeks, you will be able to evaluate the final results of your treatment.

Should you have any questions concerning your recovery, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Risks

The risk of complications is very small. As with any intervention, there is a slight risk of infection or an allergic reaction.

Acne

Acne can occur on the face, back or chest. This is because the sebaceous glands are more active in these places. Acne manifests itself through oily skin, barley grains, blackheads, red bumps, pimples or inflammations under the skin. There may also be irregularities on the skin such as pigment spots, red spots, a coarser skin structure and acne scars as a result of inflammation. Having acne often brings with it feelings of insecurity. Many people try remedies, medicines and creams for years without results. Xavier Clinics offers a solution through acne therapy.

We have various means to remedy acne such as deep cleansing, peelings, microneedling therapy for acne scars, therapeutic products and personal advice. We tackle acne from the root cause, and your skin gets a smoother and more even appearance. The goal of the treatment is to reduce acne symptoms.

Indications
With the help of acne therapy we can treat the following types of acne:
• acne vulgaris
• acne conglobata
• acne tarda
• acne inversa/hidradenitis suppurative
• acne excoriée des jeunes filles

The treatment

Manual therapy
The treatment for acne consists of thorough cleansing of the skin. The aim is to remove the excess sebum before it has a chance to become inflamed and remove the inflammation that is there without causing scarring.

Manual therapy in combination with peeling
After cleansing the skin, a peeling can be applied to the skin. The peeling is a cocktail of different acids that have a sebum-dissolving effect, which reduces sebum production in the skin. The added pulp extracts in the peels provide an extra antioxidant effect. The renewal of the skin is accelerated by the peeling, so that the skin cannot become cornified and there is less chance of clogging the sebaceous glands.

With acne, using the right products is essential. The skin therapist draws up a personalized product advice during the treatment.
• After the treatment it is important to protect your skin against UV radiation by means of a sunscreen SPF30;
• Change your pillowcase daily.

Peelings

A chemical peel is a treatment with a liquid solution consisting of natural acids. Peels provide a significant improvement in the overall skin condition, with stimulation of cell renewal and removal of dead skin cells. The skin becomes smoother, pigmentation spots are reduced, pores become less visible and the skin will grow, renew and rejuvenate. There are different types of acids with all different properties. This allows us to fully adapt each treatment to your skin. During the treatment, the practitioner will determine the appropriate peel for your skin.

Indications
– acne and residual acne
– skin rejuvenation
– reduced skin quality
– hyperpigmentation
– rosacea
– dry skin
– wrinkles and fine lines

The number of treatments depends on the intensity of the peeling and the sensitivity of the skin. A build-up of the strength of the peels may be necessary to improve the skin. Visible result is achieved by undergoing multiple treatments. It is recommended to undergo a treatment every 2-4 weeks until the desired result is achieved.

In general, the treatment is well tolerated. The feeling of a chemical peel is described as tingling, itching, burning and hot. During the treatment, a fan becomes used so that you have minimal discomfort.

It is important to properly support the skin after the treatment with special, on the
peeled skin tailored products. In this way, the recovery of the skin is stimulated. The practitioner will advise you on this. It is important to protect the skin well against UV radiation with at least SPF 30. In some cases the skin will flake slightly. Do not pick or scratch the loose skin.

Microneedling

The microneedling treatment is a very effective and hugely safe treatment method range of skin improvement and skin renewal. In this treatment, one controlled pathway of micro-channels are created in the skin. Because of this stimulation in the tissue is releasing growth factors that ensure the production of collagen and elastin. The skin gets renewed in the depth and beautified without damaging the top layer of skin. The skin gets an intensive boost and instant refresh, ultimately resulting in a thicker and smoother skin result. The skin will renews itself in a natural way: scars, wrinkles and pigmentation are faded. During the treatment, an active substance gets deeper into the skin applied, enhancing the effect.  We end the treatment with a SPF 50 recovery cream. Optionally, after the treatment, you can also choose a hyaluronic acid facial mask that soothes the skin, moisturizes and improves cell renewal. 

Indications

– (acne)scars
– skin rejuvenation
– hyperpigmentation
– large pores
– stretch marks
– wrinkles and fine lines

Visible results are achieved by undergoing multiple treatments, on average 3 times (every 4-6 weeks). Of course, every treatment with the dermapen will give a boost for the skin and will give improvement. The production of collagen and elastin is a gradual process whereby the result is not immediately fully visible, but after a number of months.

The treatment feels like small pricks in the skin and is not painful. The skin can possibly be sedated with a cream so that you hardly feel anything.

A microneedling treatment can make the skin flake. Do not scratch treated skin, the flakes disappear within a few days. Avoid hot showers, saunas, swimming and sports during the first 48 hours after treatment. Avoid UV rays for at least two weeks after the treatment and protect the skin with at least SPF30. Do not clean the treated area or apply creams, make-up or other products up to 24 hours after the treatment.

Skinpen

Renew the skin in depth, without causing superficial damage and with a minimum recovery time. This is possible with the SkinPen, a unique medical microneedling system. The SkinPen is the first Microneedling system to be FDA approved and is the only Microneedling device to have a Medical CE class 2a mark. Indications such as (acne) scars, pigmentation, irregular skin structure, skin slackening and fine lines can be treated very effectively and safely. With the arrival of the SkinPen, microneedling is safer, more precise and more effective than ever before. The SkinPen creates 1600 microchannels per second in the skin by means of very small, sterile needles that vibrate into the skin. This activates the natural repair process deep in the skin, so that new collagen (type 3) and elastin are produced. Collagen provides volume and firmness to the skin, while elastin provides the skin’s resilience. The result: the skin becomes firmer and plumper and the skin complexion more even, fresher and more radiant.

Indications
– acne and residual acne
– scars
– reduced skin quality
– hyperpigmentation
– irregular skin structure
– skin sagging
– wrinkles and fine lines

Number of treatments
The number of treatments required depends on the condition of the skin. Often 3 to 6 treatments are needed with an interval of 2-4 weeks for the desired result.

Is the treatment sensitive?
In general, the treatment is well tolerated. The treatment feels like small pricks in the skin and is not painful.

Aftercare
It is important to properly support the skin after the treatment with special products tailored to the treated skin. In this way, the recovery of the skin is stimulated. Only the Skinfuse LIFT HG may be applied for the first 24 hours. The Skinfuse RESCUE cream can be applied as needed for the next 24 hours. This cream helps to soothe, soften and repair the skin. You will receive both products after the products.

Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is a technique where we inject active ingredients into the skin through small micro injections. These ingredients consist rich cocktails of vitamins, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid. A skin booster provides natural hydration and works anti-aging. The skin will be improved from within and collagen production will be stimulated resulting in less dry skin, reduction of imperfections and a “Healthy glow”. The pores of the skin will refine and fine lines will soften. The skin booster treatment can optionally be combined with microneedling to achieve an even better result. Microneedling improves the active ingredients spread and the skin more activated to attract moisture.

Indications
– fine lines
– skin rejuvenation
– dry skin
– large pores
– wrinkles and fine lines

The number of treatments required depends on the condition of the skin. Often there are 3 treatments required 2-4 weeks apart.

It is important to properly support the skin after the treatment with special, on the skin tailored products. In this way, the result of the treatment is optimized. The practitioner will advise you on this. There is hardly any recovery time.

Elektrocoagulation

Electrocoagulation is a treatment method whereby skin imperfections are treated, effective and safe. These include milia (barley grains), fibroma (skin tags), dermatosis papulosa ligra and warts. The skin imperfections are heated with a needle through which electrical current flows. When the needle of the device touches the spot the area will heat up and shrink to a crust. These crusts disappear within a few days to a week resulting in smooth skin.

Indications
– milia (grain of barley)
– verruca seborrhoïca
– fibroma (skin warts)
– dermatosis papulosa ligra
– warts

On average, 1 to 2 treatments are required. The treatment is not completely painless but of very short duration. The heat sensation differs per area.

Do not scratch the treated skin, let the spots heal slowly. Crusts fall within a few days to a week off. Avoid hot showers, saunas, swimming and sports during the former 24 hours after the treatment. After 24 hours, you may gently pat the skin dry, do not rub. Avoid UV radiation for at least two weeks after treatment and protect the skin with minimum SPF30. 

Cosmelan

The Cosmelan treatment is one of the best depigmentation treatments worldwide for removal of pigmentation spots on light/dark skin. Superficial pigment can be treated well with a medical peel or with the pigment laser. Deeper pigment is sometimes very difficult to get rid of. For this deeper located pigment, Mesoestetic has developed the Cosmelan treatment, which is suitable for all skin types (skin type 1 to 6).

XL Hair

XL Hair® is a ‘hair booster’, an injection liquid for the scalp that nourishes and reactivates the hair follicles. It contains a large number of active ingredients such as (natural) hyaluronic acid supplemented with 47 active ingredients. Together with the nourishing ingredients in XL Hair®, the hair follicles are optimally stimulated and activated. This makes hair follicles healthy and productive again, which stops hair loss and more hair growth. Thinning hair can be tackled with XL Hair®, which results in thicker and stronger hair. XL Hair® ensures:
– Inhibiting hair loss
– Improving hair quality
– The production of multiple hairs from 1 hair follicle
– Stimulating blood circulation to the hair
– Thicker hair and a fuller head of hair

Is XL Hair® suitable for me?
There are several causes of hair loss (medical name: alopecia). In particular, hair loss that is hereditary or that arises after hormonal complaints can be treated well with the XL Hair treatment. Androgenetic alopecia (also known as male pattern baldness) and alopecia areata (genetic form, mainly occurs in women and children) are examples of alopecia in which the hair follicles (follicles) are not yet scarred. With these forms of alopecia, XL Hair® has the greatest chance of success – as long as there are still hair follicles present and there are no obvious other causes for the hair loss, such as underlying suffering or medication use.

The skin therapist makes the diagnosis and determines whether you are a suitable candidate. You are not (yet) ready for treatment with XL Hair® in the following cases:
– If you are allergic to one of the ingredients.
– If you have wounds, a skin disease or an infection, for example a cold sore (herpes infection) or a streptococcal infection.
– If you have a scarred form of alopecia.
– Consult with the skin therapist if you are being treated with immunosuppressants or corticosteroids, or if you have an autoimmune disease, type 1 diabetes, acute rheumatoid arthritis, persistent angina pectoris or endocarditis.

The treatment
On the day of the treatment, wash your hair beforehand with the Scalpfit shampoo. After the treatment, you are not allowed to wash your hair that day or use hair products. (The next day this is allowed again.) The XL Hair® is administered by the skin therapist via superficial injections into the scalp. The treatment is not painful. Your skin may look a bit red after a treatment, but this is hardly visible between your hair and will disappear after a few hours. To get the most out of your treatments, it is important that you follow the treatment plan, complete the course and use the prescribed support products at home. The home products consist of two different shampoos and a hairspray.

A treatment for men usually consists of 6 sessions, for women this is 8 sessions. The first 4 treatments should take place weekly and then every two weeks.

Profhilo

Profhilo is an anti-aging treatment that uses pure hyaluronic acid without any additional chemicals. With only five jabs per side of the face, this is a minimally invasive treatment, and you can go right back to your daily activities afterwards without anybody noticing. The positive impact of Profhilo treatments is due to the production of collagen and elastin and stimulation of the fat tissue. This is known as bio-remodeling. The Profhilo treatment makes all the various layers of your skin healthy and firm again. An important advantage of this treatment is that it rejuvenates your skin without adding facial volume. It genuinely repairs the skin and targets any laxity. Profhilo can also be used to tighten up the neck, chest, hands, upper arms or legs. To obtain the best possible result, we recommend a course of at least two or three Profhilo treatments, with approximately 28 days between sessions. After six months you will need a maintenance session.

Profhilo Body

Profhilo®️ Body is an anti-aging treatment with a large amount of pure hyaluronic acid, without chemical additives, specially developed for skin slackening of the body.

The hyaluronic acid is very natural, so there is less chance of side effects and you get a natural result. Profhilo®️ Body has been on the market since October 2021. This has been specially developed for skin sagging on the body and therefore also has a different composition than the Profhilo®️ that is already on the market.

Profhilo Serum Haenkenium

Profhilo Haenkenium combines hyaluronic acid (HA) complex with the patented salvia haenkei extract, Haenkenium, which functions as an antioxidant, protects the skin against premature aging and hyperpigmentation, restores the barrier function, relieves skin irritation and provides hydration to the skin. According to IBSA Italy, it combines 2 different molecular weights; the high molecular weight HA creates the protective effect and the low molecular weight contributes to optimal hydration of the skin.

Salvia Haenkei helps to protect against free radicals. Furthermore, the product is ideal for use after aesthetic treatments such as botox, fillers and peels, but it can also be added to your daily skincare routine. Suggested use: twice a day.

Kybella / Belkyra

Kybella has been well-known in the United States for many years. In Europe, this product is marketed as Belkyra. The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid. This substance is naturally present in the body and is used to break down the fats in our food.

A double chin consists primarily of fat tissue. This is precisely what makes the product ideally suited to breaking down that tissue. As the destroyed fat cells are no longer capable of storing fat, your double chin shrinks. The body disposes of the degraded fat cells without further intervention.

If you are interested in this treatment, we will first schedule a consultation. During this meeting, the practitioner will investigate your problem area and discuss whether this treatment is appropriate. If this is the case, they will also estimate how many sessions will be required to achieve your goal. The treatment involves injection of the liquid into the fatty tissue under your chin. It is important to cool the treated area well. This is because the treatment will cause your lower chin to swell and redden. Some bruising may occur, but this will fade away on its own.

Sculptra

Sculptra is a 100% biodegradable polylactic acid incorporated in hydrogel. The product has already proven itself in America for the past 25 years and is therefore FDA-approved. The product is suitable for the face and for the body. It can be used against cellulite, hip dips, subcutaneous imperfections after surgery and what it has become particularly famous for: giving volume to the buttocks. This avoids costly surgical intervention to fill the buttocks. An additional advantage is that daily activities can be continued immediately and the chance of complications is much smaller. Sculptra is completely absorbed by the body and eventually disappears completely from the body. The treating doctor applies the Sculptra solution just under the skin using small, thin needles. Because inserting the needle into the skin can be sensitive in some places, the doctor often uses a combination of Sculptra with a local anesthetic. Slight swelling is normal in the first hours after treatment. Immediately after the treatment, the volume-restoring effect of Sculptra is visible. After the first two weeks, that effect diminishes again, because the polylactic acid spreads in the skin. Then the new collagen starts to form. It takes a few weeks for the final result to become visible. The effect of Sculptra treatments is sustainable. The effect is visible for two to four years. After two years, Sculptra has been completely replaced by the body’s own collagen.
